Onder de Linde
Onder de Linde by Baruti. Joyous and uplifting, the fragrance is full of promises of early summer. The freshly cut bouquet of linden flowers and lavish lilacs is hiding under the crispness of the apple. A powdery splash of honeyed orris with a warm undercurrent of musky sandalwood, give the fragrance a soft, sensual tone.
Spyros Drosopoulos is a fragrance engineer and is the owner and creator of niche perfume line Baruti. Baruti is the Greek word for “gunpowder”. It is often used to describe someone with an excessive character, bite, or a certain edginess.
Starting with a PhD in neuropsychology with specifications in sleep and memory, Dr. Drosopoulos was intrigued by how the differences in scents can affect our perceptions and memories. Perfumery for Spyros started as a hobby during his research and teaching career. Now with Baruti, he aims to make perfumes where the fragrance is optimized as a medium for wearers to fit the character of the perfume.
Dr. Spyros Drosopoulos is often inspired by music and art when it comes to making perfumes. One of Baruti’s most-talked-about perfume, Tinderer, was also inspired by the song Tinderer by Danish band Under Byen. It is shown evident by how the aromas of the perfume matches with the percussions of the sounds in the song and this creation represents a crisp, dewy morning in a magical forest.
Finally, we would also like to mention that Dr. Drosopoulos, participates in The Art and Olfaction Awards. He serves as a shortlisting judge, in the artisan category.
